1) Fold a NEW $20 bill in half...

Remarkable coincidenses

2) Fold again, taking care to fold it exactly as below

3) Fold the other end, exactly as before

Remarkable coincidenses

4) Now, simply turn it over...

What a coincidence! A simple geometric fold creates a catastrophic premonition printed on all $20 bills!!!


As if that wasn't enough...
Here is what you've seen...

Firstly The Pentagon on fire...

Remarkable coincidenses

Then The Twin Towers.

...And now .. look at this!

Remarkable coincidenses

Disaster (Pentagon)
Disaster ( Twin Towers )
Disaster (Osama)???
It gets even better 9 + 11 = $20!

Creepy huh?

Pod cards

8 Podcards from Australia

10 Podcards from England
4 PodCards from Canada
6 Podcards from Ireland
6 Podcards from Scotland
10 Podcards from The USA
6 Podcards from Wales
5 Podcards from New Zealand

PodCards are audio postcards about a town or city from different countries around the world. Or it might be a biography of a famous person or info about something remarkable about this place.

PodCards are for teachers and students of English as a second language. They provide valuable practice to improve learners' listening skills and give teachers additional cross-cultural classroom material. A worksheet is provided for each PodCard.

What's more, PodCards are divided into two levels. Low level PodCards are aimed at students up to and including Pre-Intermediate level - these cards are read at a slower speed and mostly contain structure appropriate to that level.

High level PodCards are read at a higher speed, contain more advanced structures and vocabulary and are for Intermediate students and above.

All in all, it seems to be quite an interesting resource to try with my students for extra listening practice.
